Doug Kaye, the man behind IT Conversations is launching PodCorps.org. Th goal is to create a network of podcasting stringers and event producers who can record and publish important spoken-word events anywhere in the world. One of the goals is to cover events related to the 2008 election in the US.
Right now, PodCorps.org is recruiting stringers. Later, event producers will be able to tap into that pool of talent to get their events recorded. See and FAQ for more details.
If you have the ability to record events and your willing to volunteer your time, take a minute and sign up. By the way, after you register, be sure to update your profile so PodCorps.org knows where you are.
